2005 Golden Tomato Awards Winners Announced

by | January 10, 2006 | Comments

Rotten Tomatoes, the trusted online source for gauging the critical reaction to movies, has announced the 2005 recipients of the Golden Tomato Awards, the site’s annual awards given to recognize the year’s best-reviewed films.

The awards are not based solely on just the Tomatometer score. We use a weighted formula (Bayesian) to account for variation in the number of reviews per movie. The winners are determined by the rankings after applying said formula. This means between two films with similar Tomatometer scores, the one with more reviews will have a higher ranking.

The Golden Tomato for Best Limited Release Film goes to Warner Independent Pictures and director George Clooney for their McCarthy-era drama, "Good Night, And Good Luck," based on a tally of 167 reviews of the country’s top print, broadcast and online film critics.

The Golden Tomato for Best Wide Release Film is awarded to DreamWorks and Aardman Studio’s lovable duo of a cheese-obsessed inventor and his faithful companion, the titular heroes of "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit," based on the reviews of 148 critics across the nation.

Other big winners include Universal Pictures’ "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" for Best Comedy, Warner Independent Pictures’ "March of the Penquins" for Best Documentary and Sony Pictures Classics’ "Kung-Fu Hustle" for Best Foreign Film. A complete list of winners follows.
